The real reason for Obama’s unpopularity

by Steve Chapman


When a president suffers a sharp decline in popularity early in his term, it seems safe to conclude he has badly misjudged the mood of the electorate, pushed the wrong policies, and set himself on the path to becoming a one-term president. That, it’s widely agreed, is the sad tale of Barack Obama, who has managed to demoralize liberals while inspiring a wave of gloating among conservatives. A new CNN/Opinion Research poll finds that already, most Americans want to vote him out in 2012. But both Democrats and Republicans are jumping the gun...

Whatever happened to candidate Obama?

The Nation
by Katha Pollitt


I’m still glad I supported Obama over Hillary Clinton. If Hillary had won the election, every single day would be a festival of misogyny. We would hear constantly about her voice, her laugh, her wrinkles, her marriage and what a heartless, evil b... she is for doing something — whatever! — men have done since the Stone Age. … Liberal pundits would blame her for discouraging the armies of hope and change, for bringing back the same-old same-old cronies and advisers, for letting healthcare reform get bogged down in inside deals, for failing to get out of Iraq and Afghanistan. … In other words, for doing pretty much what Obama is doing. This way I get to think, Whew, at least you can’t blame this on a woman...

Obama and the state of Democrats

In These Times
by Vic Fingerhut


For months it has been obvious: President Barack Obama and his advisors don’t get it — in the language they use and the policies they pursue. The significance of November’s defeat of the entire Democratic ticket in Virginia was overstated in the media, but Gov. John Corzine’s loss in the governor’s race in New Jersey — and little-noted but significant losses in the comfortably Democratic suburban New York counties of Suffolk and Westchester — confirmed at the ballot box what the polls had been screaming long before Massachusetts...

One year later: Obama still calling “stimulus” success

by Julie Borowski


Yesterday marked the one year anniversary of the massive $787 billion stimulus being signed into law. The White House continues to claim that the stimulus has saved upwards of 2 million jobs in the past year. According to Obama, the ’stimulus’ has been a record success: ‘One year later, it is largely thanks to the recovery act that a second depression is no longer a possibility.’ Despite the White House’ statements, only 6 percent of Americans believe that it has saved a single job...

Obama pledges billions for 20th century’s most expensive technological failure — nuclear power

by Harvey Wasserman


The Vogtle site was to originally host four reactors at a total cost of $600 million; it wound up with two at $9 billion. The Southern Company which wants to build these two new reactors has cut at least one deal with Japanese financiers set to cash in on American taxpayer largess. The interest rate on the federal guarantees remains bitterly contested. The funding is being debated between at least five government agencies, and may well be tested in the courts. It’s not clear whether union labor will be required and what impact that might have on construction costs. The Congressional Budget Office and other analysts warn the likely failure rate for government-back reactor construction loans could be in excess of 50%...

Debatte über deutschen Sozialstaat: Gleiches Geld für alle

„Hartz IV, Bafög, Wohn- und Kindergeld - der Sozialstaat hat sich völlig verzettelt. Nötig ist jetzt eine radikale Reform der Sicherungssysteme: Deutschland braucht ein Grundeinkommen für alle, ohne jede Bedingung…“ Gastkommentar von Thomas Straubhaar im Spiegel online vom 23.02.2010,1518,679461,00.html

Aus dem Text: „… Die Idee ist folgende: Der Staat gewährleistet allen Bürgern vom Säugling bis zum Greis lebenslang ein existenzsicherndes monatliches Einkommen. Das Grundeinkommen wird bedingungslos und damit ohne bürokratischen Aufwand ausbezahlt. Alle erhalten das Grundeinkommen, unabhängig, ob jung oder alt, beschäftigt oder arbeitslos, verheiratet oder Single. Das Grundeinkommen bleibt steuerfrei. Auf der anderen Seite werden alle Einkünfte aus Arbeit, Zinsen und Dividenden, Miete und Pacht vom ersten bis zum letzten Euro an der Quelle erfasst und mit einem einheitlichen und gleich bleibenden Steuersatz belastet. Die meisten der heutigen Sozialtransfers könnten durch das Grundeinkommen ersetzt werden. Statt all der vielen einzelnen Sozialleistungen wie Grundrente, Sozialhilfe, Arbeitslosengeld II (Hartz IV), Bafög, Wohn- und Kindergeld sollte es nur noch das Grundeinkommen geben…“

Bagram, Obama's Secret Penal Colony

Le Nouvel Observateur: "It's the biggest American prison outside the United States. No journalist has ever been able to penetrate this no-law zone situated to the north of Kabul. Arbitrary detentions, humiliations, even torture, in the name of the 'war against terror' ... From Afghanistan, Sara Daniel reports horrific testimonies. After Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib, the next scandal to threaten America?"


What happens after Guantanamo?

Christian Science Monitor
by Marisa L. Porges

When it comes to Guantanamo, President Obama is still stuck. It’s clear the detention facility won’t close any time soon. That leaves many people, in and out of the administration, in the United States and overseas, wondering: What’s next for Guantanamo? But that’s the wrong question. Debates about Guantanamo continue to entertain with political drama and storylines like those in 24, but they typically ignore larger problems surrounding long-term detention that have confounded the US and international community for years. As a result, the American public has yet to face the toughest question of all: What happens after Guantanamo?
